Dementia Help was launched in February 2017 by Christina Collison after caring for her late mother Hazel, who had vascular dementia, for almost a decade. Christina launched Dementia Help as a friendly and helpful Facebook page for dementia carers. Such was the success of the page that Dementia Help has grown into an established brand with a significant audience.
